    Hi Jeff,

    You can use Calculation and Condition logic to add the value of a field to another field (in your case TextArea field)

    user guide: How-to-Populate-Field-with-a-Value-from-another-Field

    Here is a basic demo form http://form.jotformpro.com/form/41965390166966? that shows how the copying of value from another field gets copied to the other TextArea field.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.
